5:39 pm
tags. the franchise tag is the average of the top five players in the position salary wise, and the transition average top ten players. so this year for quarterback like cuss continues equates to one year tag worth $19.6 million. the transition tag is $17.5 million. i don't know how you would be able to live without the $2 million. franchise tag would lock cuss nines one year with the redskins. transition tag allows him to negotiate with other teams. and the redskins have seven days to match any offer. how about the other skins quarterback, robert griffin the thirds. earlier this week redskins president bruce allen hopes rgiii gets another opportunity with the team and wished him well in the future. and today a report shines some light on the team's plans for griffin. reportedly, two teams are in talks with the redskins about trading for rgiii. griffin has a $161 million option on his contract for negatives season. but if estrayed dollars that option is void and he would have to renegotiate a new deal with the team that acquir

5:50 pm
get forward into next week, we sure have run of warm days, after saturday, at 46 degrees, look at all of these days, into the low 60s, tuesday, even 62, we're dry, which we really need to dry out since the grounds is saturated. river streets running full, next chance at 06 degrees sunday, little cooler thursday at 45. cooler still head on into friday with the chance of rain or snow and temperature of 42 degrees. all right, that's your forecast but don't go anywhere. we will be right back.
